Located right off the 101 Freeway in lovely Santa Maria, CA is a wonderful tasting room and marketplace called Costa de Oro – http://www.cdowinery.com/. You can taste wine, purchase fresh produce, cheeses, snacks and other fun decor items. Let me just tell you…this is some great wine! The Santa Maria area is known for producing nice Chardonnay and Pinot Noirs, among other things. Gary Burk, winemaker at CDO has done a wonderful job here! Great wines, beautiful views, and a fun tasting room…doesn’t get much better than that!
